If you want to improve the profile of your face, giving it a more defined appearance, mentoplasty is a procedure that can change your life, that is why we tell you about before and after mentoplasty.
Mentoplasty is a surgery in which the volume of the chin is increased to achieve more projection, that is, it is further forward of the facial plane, or to give it more height, that is, to lengthen the face.
Mentoplasty can be performed using 3 techniques: with fillers, with an implant or with osteotomy (bone mobilization). The preoperative evaluation of mentoplasty is very important; it is carried out with a clinical examination, presurgical photos and special x-rays.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the incisions are hidden inside the mouth, and the recovery time is approximately 7 days.
It can be accompanied by lipografts on the cheekbones and lips. In this surgery, a small liposuction is performed to obtain fat and transfer it to the cheekbones to complement the contouring of the face. The incredible advantage of mentoplasty combined with fat lipograft is that it provides permanent aesthetic changes, unlike Hyaluronic acid which loses its effect after 6 months
In mentoplasty with implant, a silicone implant is inserted, De Tomas Feria uses Silimed chin implants, which are safe and achieve an immediate result. These can last a lifetime, they do not cause allergic reactions.

After mentoplasty surgery, the patient can eat without restrictions, can speak without limitations.
